3. Dance and cheer tryouts scheduled for this spring are on hold.  Please watch future parent emails for updates.

4. Yearbooks are still on schedule to be complete mid-May.  There is still time to order one. Follow this link to order yours!

Communication is important to us.  In an effort to help you help your children, we will post a schedule for the week with topics and assignments posted for every teacher.  The teachers are listed by department and in alphabetical order. Along with the schedule, teachers also have their office hours posted. 

Please make sure your child is logging into all his/her classes to complete assignments.  Most students have seven classes.

6. Greenfield-Central Junior High School counselors are holding their office hours from 2 PM to 4 PM Monday through Friday.  During this time, they plan to check in with students and families. Also, please know that they will be available during our elearning days from 9 AM- 4 PM via email. (efortuna@gcsc.k12.in.us and rebsmith@gcsc.k12.in.us)  They will respond to your emails as soon as possible.  Please let them know if there is anything they can do to help.
